The Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine is based at the William Harvey Research Institute at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry is comprised of two world renowned teaching hospitals, St Bartholomew's and The Royal London, which have made, and continue to make, an outstanding contribution to modern medicine. We were one of the top five in the UK for medicine in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. This programme is the longest-established Sports and Exercise Medicine MSc in the country. It is unique in the UK for the delivery of integrated academic and practical tuition. Lectures are delivered by national experts; from cutting edge scientists to physiotherapists, doctors, and other health professionals working with worldclass athletes. Core clinician-scientists on staff consult to elite athletes; we have an international research profile in Sports and Exercise Medicine. Our staffs work closely with you to nurture your research interests and to develop your clinical ability in Sports and Exercise Medicine. Many students also go on to publish in peer-reviewed journals, a reflection of the quality of our student research output. The annual scientific conference is the venue to disseminate their research findings and to be further peer challenged, which most students find a worthwhile experience, thus preparing them for the future. 

This conference is open to all who want to learn and improve their clinical knowledge through science
